What is it about ?
At 26, Takemichi feels like he’s already messed up his life. Living on ungrateful little jobs just good enough to pay the rent of a shabby studio, he laments the desert of his love life when he learns of the death of Hinata, the only girlfriend he has had…
The young girl and her brother were the collateral victims of a settling of accounts between the members of a gigantic gang, the Tokyo Manji-kai. Still in shock, Takemichi is in turn the victim of an accident that inexplicably takes him back 12 years, when he was in college and gave himself the air of a bad boy. And if it was for him the occasion to save Hinata?
Season 2 airs weekly on Disney+
